In Brief

The empty town of Seneca comes with a licensed bar, rundown cabins, and even a small island for the adventurous buyer.

Getting your foot on the property ladder may seem like a hefty endeavor, but for a mere $225,000 you can buy a whole town in California – a ghost town that is.

Seneca, located in Northern California, used to be a goldmining town, but all that is left is three ramshackle cabins, a bar and – the selling point – a liquor license. The owner, Tim TenBrink, bought the town in the 1970s, when he drove through and stopped at the bar while on a hunting trip. Now his nephew, Jeff Potter, is helping him sell it as it is ‘treacherous’ to get to and his uncle is getting to old to make the trip, according to ABC News.
